Ingo Giezendanner, a painter and installation artist from Zurich, traveled by land from Zurich to Baku, Azerbaijan. His illustrative journal drawn with pen and ink, Baku & Back, documents that journey.

Ingo's statement:

"The drawings capture the gradual change of scenes from Switzerland through the former Yugoslavian states, Bulgaria, Turkey and Georgia before finally arriving in Azerbaijan (to travel back again just see the book backwards). This is my statement to go out, see the world and avoid airplanes. Take your time and enjoy the view on your train ride."

It is astounding. You can purchase a copy online for $28 from the publisher, Nieves.
